Former Idaho State University Professor Habib Sadid was back in court Monday.
During a hearing at the Bannock County courthouse Judge Robert Naftz granted a motion by Sadid's attorney's to lift the stay that was preventing his second suit against ISU from moving forward.
The Idaho Supreme Court upheld the state's dismissal of Sadid's first lawsuit against the university saying his claims he was punished for voicing his concerns were without merit.
Sadid was fired from his post in the College of Engineering for what administrators called unprofessional and insubordinate conduct and this second case alleges his was let go without due process
Sadid's attorney Ron Coulter says he is glad Judge Naftz stood by his earlier ruling.
"We’re real happy, my client's real happy that the stay was lifted,” said Coulter. “The judge basically went by his order which we thought he should do and justice was served today."
No timetable has been set for Sadid's next court appearance.
